CHARLES KRAUSE/REPORTING FINE ART has issued an Open Call inviting artists to submit paintings, drawings, mixed media, site specific installations and video art by January 10th for a juried exhibition that will seek to influence the passage of effective and meaningful gun control laws in response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School earlier this month.
"A Call to Arms: The Newtown Project" will open on Inauguration Day, January 20th, and run through President's Day, February 18th. The gallery, dedicated to showing "the art of social and political change," is located 8 blocks from the White House in Washington, DC.
The Newtown Project is a completely non-profit and non-commercial response to the Newtown tragedy by CHARLES KRAUSE/REPORTING FINE ART in partnership with Washington's Millennium Arts Salon. Artists are asked to submit 1 to 3 high res images of their work no later than Jan 10 to TheNewtownProject@
Those whose work the jury selects will be notified by Jan 14. All work submitted for the show will be available for licensing, free of charge, to groups engaged in pro-gun control public education campaigns and other activities.
